SUN AIR PILOTS REACH TENTATIVE AGREEMENT

 WASHINGTON, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- A tentative contract agreement between the pilots and management of Sun Air Airlines was announced today by Capt. Jorge Falcon, chairman of the Sun Air pilots' Master Executive Council, a unit of the Air Line Pilots Association.
 The new three-year agreement, effective through August 1995, provides immediate across-the-board pay increases ranging from 13.3 to 28 percent, as well as significant improvements in working conditions.
 Falcon stated that Sun Air pilots are very pleased with the new agreement. "This contract provides our company with the ability to grow and prosper, and brings the pilots of Sun Air up to parity with pilots at other regional carriers," Falcon said.
 Sun Air, based in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, serves cities in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
 The Air Line Pilots Association is the largest labor union and professional organization of U.S. airline pilots. It is affiliated with the AFL-CIO and holds bargaining rights for 42,000 airline pilots at 36 carriers.
